About us

Since its inception in 1992, Gulf Steel


Industries Co. Ltd (GSIC) has consistently
strived to enhance its products and services
through continuous development of advanced
technologies in-house. In our quest to achieve
sustainable development, we have focused on
placing environmental, health and safety issues
at the forefront at all times.
A pivotal part of the Al Nasser Industrial
Enterprises L.L.C Group, Gulf Steel has, over the
years, played a prominent role in ensuring we
are always at the top of our game. In line with
our global aspirations, Gulf Steel has expanded
its customer base beyond the boundaries of the
UAE and caters to customers in other rapidly
growing markets across the GCC region.
Gulf Steel is 9001:2008 Certified and
manufactures hot rolled low carbon steel
(Deformed Steel Bars) through Thermo
Mechanical Treatment process (QST) in sizes
ranging from 8 mm to 32 mm and in lengths of
12 meter. We also produce Plain Bars, Square

Bars and Welded Mesh. Gulf Steel is currently


capable of rolling out 120,000 TPA of Deformed
Steel Bars, 36,000 TPA of Cold Ribbed Bars in
coils and cut to length, as well as 15,000 TPA of
Welded Mesh.
The exponential growth witnessed by Gulf Steel
in such a short span of time has presented us with
a unique opportunity to expand our capacities,
diversify the scope of operations and expand
the purview of our product offering. In order to
realize this vision, Gulf Steel has planned a state
of the art rolling mill in ICAD II, Mussafah, Abu
Dhabi. The plant will have a capacity of 400,000
TPA and is scheduled to be commissioned by
Q2 of 2011.
Gulf Steel has also launched two primary
subsidiaries to help further develop and enhance
the product offering. The two new entities Emirates
Steel Co. L.L.C (Billet Manufacturing) and Gulf
Sponge Iron Co. Ltd (D.R.I Manufacturing) have
been established to cater to a wider customer
base in UAE and abroad.

Gulf Steel Industries produces Deformed Steel Bars from prime quality
billets manufactured by our sister companies Emirates Steel Co. L.L.C &
Emirates Steel Establishment. After receiving the billets and inspecting them,
they are stacked according to the cast numbers. Pre-sized billets are charged
to a pusher type, temperature-controlled Re-heating Furnace.
The heated billets are passed through various stands to arrive at the desired
size. From the finishing stand, the bars are passed through a Thermo
Mechanical Treatment (TMT) process whereby the hot bar get rapidly
cooled by water to achieve a high strength with high ductility. Due to rapid
controlled cooling, surface temperature of bar reduce drastically and form
martensite structure and core of the bar remain fine grain ferrite perlite. This
provides the higher strength and ductility to the finished material.
Bars are cut by a Flying Shear in the required length and passed through twin
channels to a walking beam type cooling bed. The cooled bars are scored
by using a finishing shear as per the standard length (12 meters), bundled
(2 tons) and sent for keeping in the finished goods storage area.

Quality Assurance Plan

The latest technologies and industry best practices are in place to aid
and hone our manufacturing expertise. The quality control department
is equipped with the most superior computerized monitoring and testing
systems. Our Engineering and R&D division continuously strives towards
betterment of product quality. And, of course, there is the ISO 9001:2008
certification, which were very proud of.
Gulf Steel maintains Total Quality Management (TQM) systems in all
stages of production. We follow international quality control standards for
everything from testing basic raw material to certifying the final product.
The following helps make Total Quality a way of life at Gulf Steel
Careful selection of basic raw material
Chemical analysis of steel scrap used for re-melting in
Induction /Arc Furnace
Chemical analysis of hot material samples
Chemical analysis and physical properties of Billet
Re-heating furnace temperature check

Superior Quality
Gulf Steel produces high-grade TMT construction rods. The mill is
technologically advanced and uses semi-automatic rolling to ensure the quality.
Due to the low carbon content and strict quality controls, the TMT process bars
do not lose strength at the weld joints, are highly flexible and provide topgrade elongation. The special design of the bars allow for excellent bonding
properties and a longer life.
